97 Jeep Wrangler Squealing LOUD!

When my Jeep first starts it squeals loudly (have replaced serpentine belt already). After I get it moving it will usually stop. However, if I am rolling along and slow down or stop it will start squealing again and will only stop if I turn off any accessories I have running (radio, heater, and sometimes even headlights) or after I get it up to 1500-2000 RPM's. I have had trouble in the past with leaking water onto my passenger floor mat in the front when it rains and when I take it through the car wash - could this be part of the problem?
Also this morning I couldn't get it going well - it shuddered violently in 1st & 2nd gear and my "check engine" light started to flash on and off, then came on steadily. I turned around and went home. My husband put his code reader on it and it came up "Cylinder 1 misfire". Could these two problems be related? **Yesterday I ran it through the car wash since the weather was unseasonably warm and it rained VERY hard all night - could something be getting wet in there?
HELP me!! She's been a good, hard runner for me for nine years now, and I refuse to let her go just yet! She's got about 108,000 miles and has seen very regular maintenance. Just got a clean inspection in July. Any help anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks,
Seana

I had what sounds like the same issue on an 96 grand cheroke and i also changed the belt but every time when starting cold it would squeel so started investigating and low and behold it was the distributor the bushings inside have worn and would squeel til it warmed up so i would try this to see if that helps

The only thing I can think of is that the belt needs tightening. Check all the pulleys, sometimes if there are glazed it will give you the same problem. The misfire could be a bad ignition wire or a wire that got wet.

WHAT IS THE LIKELY CAUSED OF A LOUD SQUEALING NOISE COMING FROM THE ALTERNATOR SERPENTINE DRIVE BELT SYSTEM ? IS IT THE ALTERNATOR OR SERPENTINE BELT?


serpentine belt is getting old and hard and the cold weather was causing it to slip
check belt condition ( small cracks across the grooves = scrap and get a new one) and check tension

Serpentine belt squiks when I start the engine


When the belt starts to squeals, its time to replace it. over time the belt will streach and get glased over. 9 time out of 10 replacing it will stop the squealing...1 percent....you may have to replace your belt tensioner, along with your belt.....
Hope this helped you ??

Makes a loud squealing noise when i start it?


CHECK THE ALTERNATOR BELT IS TIGHT AND SERVICEABLE . THE EXTRA LOAD ON THE ALTERNATOR WHEN YOU START THE CAR IS CAUSING THE BELT TO SLIP.

Tech says serpentine belt needed to be replaced. after changing the belt 2 more times, still cannot use air conditioner or defrost due to loud squealing from belt and it pulls power down from alternator....


Your vibration damper may be going bad!
It sounds like a belt problem....but isnt load sensitive right? Yeah....that's what they sound like. Especially the part where they squeal on start up.

Have the tensioner replaced too just in case.

My 1999 jeep cherokee belt squeals very loud when giving it gas and chirps a little when idleing


If you get the squealing noise even when car is not running, and if noise get louder when you push the accelerator pedal, then it is the serpentine belt.

You may need to put the belt in tension, or to replace it.

Loud squealing sound in my engine


Try removing the belt and turning each pulley by hand. If everything is smooth and free, with the belt still off, drive down the block once and see if the noise is there (this will eliminate all rotating accessories on the front). If you hear the noise, then there is a problem deeper inside. Oil pressure is good? Dont' forget when doing this, you will have no power steering, so be careful.

Loud squealing noise


The noise is most likely the serpentine belt. Check it's condition and that of the belt tensioner. It sounds like the belt is slipping, causing the squealing noise u describe. As the belt warms up, it's getting a better 'grip' and the noise stops. Turning on the heat also turns on the a/c in newer cars, this added drag on the belt (one more component to turn, the a/c compressor) would explain why it happens when u turn on the heat. Is the belt original? If yes, it's time to change it, and check the belt tensioner to make sure it's doing it's job of keeping the belt snug on all the pulleys. Let me know how u make out.
